Recent appearances

  • Pension Equality for Women 14 Dec 2017

    I thank my hon. Friend for all the hard work that he has put in. I am sure that he, like me, has come across many women who have based all their retirement plans—their partners may have already retired—on what they were told, and assumed, would be their retirement age. They all say to me, “It is just not fair.”
  • Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Animal Welfare: Sentencing 2 Nov 2017

    To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, if he will introduce legislation to increase the maximum sentence for animal cruelty offences to five years imprisonment.
  • Written Answers — HM Treasury: Learning Disability: Taxation 2 Nov 2017
